Blew Things Up at Neon Jungle ft. Adventure Club & Rudimental
On Friday, March 14, 2014, one of the finest drum and bass artist in the world right now, Rudimental, came for a one-off DJ set show in Jakarta alongside Canada’s newest electronic dance music duo, Adventure Club. This event was held in Blowfish/Puro and this was Blowfish’s last event before their renovation. So that is probably why a lot of people came, aside of the fact that they were going to watch one of the best act in electronic music right now, they came to enjoy the old blowfish before the renovation.
Local Drum and Bass producer and DJ, DTX, opened the night with a mesmerizing drum and bass set. Straight after that, Rudimental came on stage with a live trumpet and cool mixes. They played Disclosure’s “When the Fire Starts to Burn” along with other cool tracks and their originals such as “Waiting All Night” and “Feel the Love”. Despite the fact that the venue was packed with people, most of the crowd doesn’t seem to care. There were lots of people jumping around to solid, heart thumping drum and bass delicacy, which was served by Rudimental with a cool live trumpet as a cherry on top. They also played their hit, “Not Giving In” and a couple of cool house tracks to heat up the night. There was no time for the crowd to stop dancing because straight after Rudimental’s solid performance, Adventure Club came onstage and played some of their famous track such as “Gold” and “Crash”. Fun fact, this duo from Montreal used to play post-hardcore before and now they’re following Skrillex and Friendly Fires’ way that switched from post-hardcore genre to Electronic music. Probably that is the reason why their set was heavy and heart pumping, even there’s crowdsurf happened during their set.
Justeen and William Wijaya closed the night with their sets. Which was a perfect end for a perfect night to remember. We’re looking forward for another good times at newly-renovated Blowfish, which we hoped would be legit and awesome. (Photos : Ismaya Live)
